Question about Maytag Dryers
Did it just start burning out on its own, or have you recently changed the element or the wire to the element?
It sounds like the crimp isn't nearly heavy enough for the wire. If the wire isn't burned, and the element is the right one, then either the wire is not a heavy enough guage or the crimp is too light weight for that connection.
Dryers are 240 volts and there's a lot of amps going through that connector. If it is not the same as the original, buy a heavy duty crimp ring from an electrical supply house for that guage of wire or at a Home Depot or Lowes.
Let us know if that's not the case.
